During the cornavirus, people are stuck at home and surfing the internet. Our office has had several inquiries from our website asking this question. Can I have my Tennessee DUI conviction expunged from my record ? The quick answer is no. A Tennessee DUI conviction can never be expunged currently. Only DUI cases that were dismissed or you were found not guilty can be expunged. There is a silver lining though. DUI charges that were reduced to a reckless driving or reckless endangerment may be eligible for expungement.
Under Tennessee Code Annotated section 40-32-101(G), Tennessee law provides a mechanism for expungement . The statue lists criminal offenses which may be eligible for expungement. There are a few requirements.
- You must not have been convicted of any other crimes.
- Five years must have elapsed since the completion of the sentence imposed.
- The person met all his requirements of the sentence imposed. Such as the fines court costs, and fees must be paid. Conditions of probation must be satisfied
